The Varsity Club is the annual giving program of the Sycamore Athletic Fund (SAF) that provides financial support for Indiana State University Intercollegiate Athletics. Your support directly impacts the success of Sycamore Athletics by offsetting the cost of books, equipment or even tuition and helps Sycamore student-athletes achieve both in the classroom and in competition.


The Varsity Club is every fan's opportunity to show their support of the Sycamores. We recognize contributions over the course of the university's fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) to allow us to acknowledge your overall charitable support of the Sycamores.


Varsity Club members pledge to support Indiana State Athletics with a minimum gift of $125 annually. This donation can be designated to the program or project that means the most to you. Here are the ways you can make an impact on Indiana State student-athletes and teams.


Sycamore Athletics (Greatest Needs) is an unrestricted fund that is operated by Indiana State Athletics. It ensures that our athletic programs have the resources they need to compete at the highest level.


Team Funds are essential to the operations of each team. Gifts made to a specific team directly impact expenses related to equipment, meals, travel, recruiting and uniforms.


Student-Athlete Scholarships is the general scholarship fund for Sycamore Athletics, and contributions to it provide support for the education of Indiana State student-athletes.


Special Projects include the Coaches Enhancement Fund, Facilities Enhancement Fund, Larry Bird Scholarship Fund, and the Gibson Track & Field/Sycamore Athletic Complex. More exciting projects will be announced soon!
